About the property

Nestled among towering pines, Acadia Conifer Ridge Cottage sits high on a knoll amongst over an acre of lush Maine woods. Minutes from Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor, Conifer Ridge is located in the quaint village of Salisbury Cove, on the edge of all of Mount Desert Island’s many attractions. Our well-equipped cottage features all the comforts needed for your home away from home.

Whether you are enjoying the idyllic Maine woods from the expansive wrap-around porch, relaxing in the coziness and comfort of the rooms, or cooking up a feast of fresh Maine lobsters and clams, you are sure to find Acadia Conifer Ridge Cottage to be your ideal vacation retreat.

• 2.8 miles to Acadia National Park

Acadia Conifer Ridge Cottage sleeps up to six (6), plus a small child or infant. Smoking and pets are not permitted.


Acadia Conifer Ridge Cottage is the quintessential Maine getaway. What makes it so special? Start with your wide wraparound porch so whatever the weather, you'll stay dry and cool. You’ll be able to listen to the wind of Frenchman Bay rustling the needles of hundred year old white pines and lobster boats chugging along. No matter if the day calls for hot coffee and cocoa, or refreshing lemonade, your porch is a place for all seasons.

Once inside, enjoy the open floor plan with vaulted ceilings in the kitchen, dining and living room area. Whether you are curled up on the sofa with a good book, or enjoying the coziness of the fireplace, you will find yourself surrounded by oil paintings depicting the coast of Maine, and books describing the history and wonders of the island.


The fully equipped open floor plan kitchen has everything from a lobster kettle to a microwave oven. You will find two sets of dishes for eight, silver service for twelve, and almost any kind of pot, pan, or utensil you may desire. The large dining table opens to accommodate eight people comfortably.


The master and a secondary bedroom are nestled in the back of the cottage and each have oak furnishings handcrafted by an island artisan, and feature queen-sized beds and TVs. There is also an irresistible sleeping loft with double beds designed for the making of childhood memories, or a great place to sneak away for a nap.

House was comfortable and had all the things necessary to make our vacation great! Loved the gas fireplace to take the chill out of the air. Beds were comfortable. Loved the layout of the kitchen and living room all being open. Loved the porches. The house was very clean which was important to us.

Great house, good location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in late summer this year and it was our first time in the area. The cottage was well-equipped with everything we needed during our stay. It was clean and had all the essentials we needed for cooking. We loved the little grill outside and found the area very peaceful and relaxing. Morgan was really accommodating to our requests and was very easy to get a hold of when needed. We would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing base for your hiking adventures in the park. There were only two of us but it had three spacious bedrooms and would be really great for a family with three or four kids.

Loved the location!!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Bar Harbor. Our first trip to Maine. The cabin was very comfortable and in a very private location. It did have all of the necessities to cook meals, as well as dishes. However, it did not have a dishwasher so we used paper plates and paper cups. We ate most of our meals out. The home does have internet but very few TV stations. We used our computers to stream programs in the evening. The location was great, five minutes from Acadia National Park and the downtown area. This home would be great for a family with small children or a couple. There is only one bath so it might be tight for more than one couple or older children. Recommend Sweet Peas Cafe five minutes away. An awesome place for dinner and wine tasting. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home for your stay in Bar Harbor.

A Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Conifer Ridge Cottage and the location and amenities were just perfect. Everything was as advertised, plus it has WiFi, and when we had a small problem with the fireplace the owner was very responsive and had it immediately repaired. The cottage is in a nice quite private location, but is still close enough to the road that everything is convenient. I highly recommend Mainly Meats BBQ about 2 min. away for some awesome food and ice cream! I checked some of the other rentals along the lake in the area and can tell you that you will pay as much for a tiny little shack situated right next to your neighbors.

The Acadia park is about 5 min., the Bar Harbor town 10 min., and major retail stores (Walmart, Home Depot, etc.) are about 20 min. away. I had some work done on my van while visiting and it was really nice to be able to drop it off and catch one of the wonderful free Island Explorer buses back and be dropped off on the main road a few minutes walk from the cottage. The buses are new and modern and all have front and rear bike racks for up to 6 bikes and you can flag them down on any main road and they will drop you off anywhere you want along their route. While the car was in the shop, my wife, son, and I rode our bikes down to the road and caught the bus over to Bar Harbor, then an express bike shuttle over to Eagle lake for a ride, then back for a delicious lunch in Bar Harbor. Needless to say, but we also highly recommend this beautiful and well maintained property.

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage! Everything was neat and clean, and the cabin was well stocked. The loft was perfect for our twins. They love bed having their own space. It was very nice to be secluded away from everyone. We would highly recommend this cottage!
